• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Also.. since mast radiators can have a pretty high voltage against ground, they need to be well fenced in case some idiot decides to go for a climb.
Interesting. I didn't know they were voltage-fed. If it was a standard 1/4 wave groundplane style I always thought the high voltage region was at the top.

Also, the fact there are multiple towers allows the signal to be directed in a certain direction by adjusting the phase with which the towers are fed.

Mandalore system :|]
It's beside the national defense property. Not on it.

Also, what i like about this site, is you can click on the daytime, and night time radiation pattern, for those of you who are into am radio.

But like i said, if u can click on satellite view, zoom in, and u can see the antenna array on some of the maps.

some show 6 towers, some show 8,
I'm gona put this one to rest...It IS a DND (Department of National Defense) "back-up" radio installation. There are several sites like this all across Canada...and in the Golden Horseshoe. There is another one on the Toronto Island as well.
